In the nick of time!!

Yes, ma'am! I wanted to do this MME blog challenge before the 20th and then today I realize it's the 20th...YIKES! So here I am last minute printing pictures, throwing this layout together, and then taking a picture of it in the wrong lighting! Why do I do this...LOL Oh, well, I'm just happy I finished this layout of Travis and his new journey in to cross country racing. He's loving it and we're so proud of him :D

Now to get back to my scrap room and clean the horrific mess I Have a great night :D

Summertime banner

I had forgotten to post this banner! I was so proud of myself for buying the banner kit from A Kiss On the Chic and ACTUALLY completing the project...rare thing for me, but I'm trying to change that. It looks cute on my mantle :D

Off to finish up some cleaning and then hoping to scrap!

Baby love!

Yep, I love this little man! He's such a good little baby and he's starting to get to that really cute stage where he goos and gahs at sweet! These pictures were staring at me, so I just had to get to scrapping them. My sister is going to have a full book before you know it. I used Melissa Frances Hush a' Bye -- pretty baby paper for sure!

For this layout, I used sketch #63 from Creative Scrappers.

One of these days I'm going to find just the perfect spot for taking pictures...ya, one of these days!

BPM August reveal

The time has come for us gals to upload our DT creations for this month. I actually finished up early which is a very rare thing for Seriously! Usually procrastination fuels my creativity, but not this time. Kind of odd really. Anywho, let's get on to debuting the Solo kit with my layouts and cards.

Here's my favorite because it makes me smile every time I think of my friends coming all the way from Oklahoma to celebrate my birthday with me. Words can't begin to describe the fun I had!

I traced a Technique Tuesday chipboard template to get the outline of this layout. The circle is actually a piece of cardboard I had gotten in another kit a while back.

This one is Collin will beg you to death until you finally give in out of frustration. Well, actually, he begged my brother over and over, but we knew they were going to go fishing eventually. He just didn't understand the concept of time that fishing had to be done later in the evening after the heat of the day has gone. Collin actually caught a "bullhead" catfish as he describes it, but I wasn't around to get a photo and my brother forgot...big bummer!

And here are a couple of cards. This one uses July's Back Porch Memories stamp set. I loved the cupcakes!

This one uses up some of those cute feltie things that come in the Solo kit.

Make sure to check out the other girls' creations in the DT Gallery.

It's the 1st...

so I'm going to show you the AWESOME Back Porch Memories kits for the month!
The gorgeous solo features BG June papers for sure!

The medley features BG Lemonade, new Three Bugs, and OA Cherry Hill!

and just look at these stamps!!!!

My early layout for the month is one of Collin at a local festival which features his favorite ride...the race cars! Yeah, cuz you know they go really Funny that every one kept asking who the girl was in the photo and I have to keep saying...I don't know, just a passenger LOL I even embossed using this month's stamps...woo hoo! The pendants are cut with a GSD file from Quickutz. I've been trying to use the Silhouette more often...trying! My journaling is under the second pendant where I layered two pendants together to lift for the journaling.

Then I have a color combo challenge going on for the month of August at BPM using some of my favorite summer colors. Come check out all the challenges and play along to be entered for a great prize from Paula!

Here's my layout using BG Lime Rickey -- love that paper!! I stitched around the edges, but it's hard to see with the white thread. I cut the circle border and the frame using QK digital files.

And, lastly, I leave you with a layout I created of my little nephew, Gavin, using Pink Paislee papers and a bit of Crate Paper embellies.

I think that's it for now. We're off to the beach today if I ever get off this computer and finish gathering everything up. Wishing you all a happy scrappy day!!
